Cancer chemotherapy treatment often leads to hair loss, which may be prevented by cooling the scalp during drug administration. The current hypothesis for the hair preservative effect of scalp cooling is that cooling of the scalp skin reduces blood flow (perfusion) and chemical reaction rates. Reduced perfusion leads to less drugs available for uptake,(More)
We study the properties of a hard-sphere dense gas near the hard walls of micro and nano-channels. Analytical techniques , Monte Carlo (MC) methods and molecular dynamics (MD) simulation methods have been used to characterize the influence of the characteristic parameters such as number density, reduced density, width of the system and molecular diameter,(More)
There is a tendency to cool mechanical and electrical components by microchannels. When the channel size decreases, the continuum approach starts to fail and particle based methods should be used. In this paper, a dense gas in micro and nano-channels is modelled by molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations. It is shown that in the limit situation both(More)
operating temperatures and/or low external pressures. Out-gassing effects can be often found in cracks of solid surfaces or in small cavities of MEMS/NEMS structures. Outgassing can create a problem for the wafer-level packaging. Wafer-level packaging is essential for minia-turization and high-level integration in the semiconductor industry. It allows for(More)
To the Editor: During surgery under general anesthesia, thermal imbalances within the patient's body are common. These imbalances are caused by a variety of factors, including exposure to a cold operating environment and heat loss from surgical incisions. Perhaps the most important thermal imbalance is hypothermia, resulting initially from redistribution of(More)
Introduction: In humans skin blood flow (SBF) plays a major role in body heat loss. Therefore the accuracy of models of human thermoregulation depends for a great deal on their ability to predict skin blood flow. Most SBF-models use body temperatures directly for calculation of skin perfusion. However, humans do not sense temperature directly, yet the(More)
